Summer is Here!

Well, it is summer here in Southern CA. Temps over 100 for days now. We've also got humidty (like the East coasters) which makes it even worse.

We particiapted last week in the Changing Seasons Craft Show. Met new crafters and had a fairly successful show. Next one is mid August and the theme is Halloween and Thanksgiving (already???). I have to get busy on those items so that means fabric shopping, YEAH!

I have included some pictures from our most recent show. A new set up for us. Still some tweaking to do.

Would also like to have you take a look at a couple of great artisians. They have some really neat items.

County Fair Entry

Well, it's official. Don submitted his entry form and next week we take the trivet to the Fairplex fairgrounds. He patiently made 197 cuts in this trivet that is a replica of the Rose Window at Notre Dame. The trivet is made from corian and the frame has a stone texture. Here is a pic of his work and the real thing.

We will keep you posted on how it goes. The fair doesn't start until September.

Great Weekend

Had some fun with family and got a little work done too. The move of my work area is about 75% complete. Lots of organizing to do but we were able to stitch out some cute monkey designs for a blanket we are working on.

This week will be jam packed as we get ready for the craft show next week and Don finishes his entry for the LA County Fair. I will be concentrating on getting several blankets and blankies finished.

We have decided to close our Etsy shop ( Views have dropped off considerably since they made changes related to searches. We will be offering FREE SHIPPING on all purchases. Expect to close the shop by the end of July and will focus our time and post new items in our Arfire shop ( Views there have picked up.

Well, off to work I go but check out some of the great work done here
